Lyrics[]

[Chorus: John Legend & Ariana Grande]
I'm fuckin' with you, baby
Just let me be the one you love down
I'm fuckin' with you, baby
I'm wit' it, if you wit' it right now

[Verse 1: John Legend]
Wasn't looking for nobody
'Til you stood in my way
Look at that face, alright
Wasn't tryna find a reason to get out of this place
Now it's a race, yeah

[Pre-Chorus: John Legend]
Ooh, so many bodies in this party
I could choose, oh, I could cho-o-ose
Ooh, I got a million other things that I could do
But right now

[Chorus: John Legend & Ariana Grande]
I'm fuckin' with you, baby
Just let me be the one you love down
I'm fuckin' with you, baby
I'm wit' it, if you wit' it right now (Ooh)

[Post-Chorus: John Legend & Ariana Grande]
This happens too much
You take it just too far
Back of a black car with you
Let’s do it till sun up
You say that it’s real love
Pretend that we got nothing to lose (I'm fuckin' with you)

[Verse 2: Ariana Grande]
I don't wanna to say too much
'Cause I don't really play too much
And boy you better use discretion
'Cause I ain't nothin' like 'yo exes
And I don't wanna waste another
Minute on a wasted lover
Said I got hours for you, ooh, ooh

[Pre-Chorus: John Legend]
Ooh, so many bodies in this party
I could choose, oh, I could cho-o-ose
Ooh, I got a million other things that I could do
But right now

[Chorus: John Legend & Ariana Grande]
I'm fuckin' with you, baby
Just let me be the one you love down
I'm fuckin' with you, baby
I'm wit' it, if you wit' it right now (I’m fuckin' with ya)

[Bridge: John Legend & Ariana Grande]
Slide, slide, slide (Oh, yeah)
I'm wit' it tonight (I'm wit' it tonight)
Slide, slide, slide
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh (Said baby, can you?)

I'm wit' it tonight (I'm wit' it tonight)
Slide, slide, slide
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh (You know I like it, baby)
